Hello everybody. I'm just having a little explore of this Wildhub meeting room. Photograph is common green grasshopper found on a recent early morning visit to the nearby Castor Hanglands nature reserve.
Great Fen Voluntary Officer with the Wildlife Trust BCN, Wildlife Trust BCN
After many years working Perkins Engines Company as an engineer focussed on reducing diesel engine exhaust emissions, I have changed direction, and am now working in conservation. I have completed the first year of an MSc in Applied Wildlife Conservation in Cambridge (ARU). Since Oct 2019 I have been working as a voluntary officer for the Wildlife Trust BCN on the Great Fen project. I am also heavily involved with the Langdyke Countryside Trust, who look after 200 acres of nature reserves in Jon Clare Countryside, north-west of Peterborough (in north Cambridgeshire, UK). Like many others, my 2020 plans have been significantly impacted by the Covid19 lockdown, so I am looking for the positives, and pursuing opportunities to acquire new skills.
We are an international community of conservation professionals. We provide a space to exchange ideas, create new solutions, and make new partnerships to enable better, faster, and cheaper conservation that helps save more wildlife. We are a non-hierarchical friendly community of like-minded people, with similar values and different ideas. Our community is free to join and mainly for those currently working in the conservation sector, but it is open to anyone who feels that they can contribute in a meaningful way. Our community is member-led, meaning that members decide what to talk about, how to interact, and how to grow the community.
